Thursday. October 21, 1974 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page Cruising the Arkansas--a unique experience PASSENGERS aboard the "Arkansas Explorer" (upper left) gaze out on the tranquil waters of Lake Dardanelle. The colorful cruiser leaves North Little Rock twice each week to journey up to Dardanelle and back— an excellent opportunity for those who want to get away for a few quiet days and explore a different way of life. This is the first time a cruiser has ever plied the waters of the Arkansas River. Skipper of the sturdy little ship is Capt. Gary Davis. The Explorer's offices are at 111 East Third St., Little Rock. LDELLE MCINTOSH (above), cook aboard the "Arkansas Explorer" checks the noon vittles. Idelle has been cooking on the water for 10 years, and is justly famous for her fried catfish. The "Explorer" carries 42 passengers, besides her crew who are all veterans. Idelle must keep everybody well-fed and happy. AT LEFT, passengers aboard the "Explorer" enjoy a game of snuffleboard. On her twice-weekly voyages up the Arkansas, the colorful Explorer carries her passengers through several locks and dams, passed picturesque landscapes, along waters that have changed little since the Cherokees fished from their banks over a century ago.

Bill Clinton challenges opponent on grain issue DARDANELLE, Ark. (AP)Congressional candidate Bill Clinton of Fayetteville challenged his opponent, Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt, R-Ark., Wednesday night to take a stand on the sale of U.S. grain to the Soviet Union. Clinton is the Democratic nominee from the 3rd District. •'Uke so many other things, he just keeps quiet and hopes that no one will call him on it, and I'm tired of it. I think he should take a stand," Clinton told the Yell County Democratic Central Committee. ' 'While my opponent seems to be very willing to attack my credibility, he has not taken a stand on the issues that are uppermost in the minds of the voters of this district." Meanwhile, at Russellville, Hammerschmidt said if the grain sale affected domestic prices, the United States should not go through with it. Hammerschmidt was attending an appreciation day for himself. Clinton also criticized President Ford's statement that opponents of the administration's decision to allow the Russians to buy 2.2 million tons of grain this year might be endangering world peace. Clinton called the statement ridiculous. "The Russians aren't going to fall out with us if we don't give away all our grain when we have no reserve and their grain reserves are the highest in their history." Clinton said the sale of grain should be stopped and Congress should do something about it. He said Hammerschmidt voted in July 1973 to allow financing of the original Russian wheat deal at six per cent interest.
